I grew up growing to church irregularly and my Mum used to tell me that she was teaching me a way of life and that when i come of age i will choose which church to attend. I really loved going to church, enjoyed gospel music but I was not born again, just loved the bible and wanted to know more from it but never even made an effort to read it.
This grew with me until I was 15 years when I had an opportunity to give my life to Christ at a Christ Embassy church where i had attended. My aunt had brought my cousin and I along with her.
After a powerful message was preached that day an altar call was made, I heard a voice say to me go. I then turned to my cousin who i was seating next to and said to him" lets go", he refused.
I then stood and went to the front to give my life to Christ. After that I went to church a few times then I stopped and no one ever followed me up except only once where i received a call from the follow up team.
But even after giving my life to Christ I leaved with a lot of anxiety and regret, wondering what i have done and some how wished i could renounce my faith yet at the same time I loved Jesus. I used to hear my classmates, during my junior high school days, talk about how church was on Sunday and I would wish i was there because I knew deep down in my heart that is where i belong.
But in the midst of that i was caught up in the night life. Things would start to take a deep during my first year in school especially after my brothers passing, who was born again and a member of the Believers Loveworld nation.
I started drinking and partying even more and that affected my academic performance. During my 2nd year in Uni I failed my and discontinued and was sent back from Industrial training because my instructor then noticed something wrong with me.
Shortly after that I was diagnosed with depression, attended counselling sessions at my University and even put on medication. This was the same year I had made a decision at the beginning of that year, that i will find a church to go to and start attending regularly.
In June, my aunt came to see me before she left for ICLC in South Africa and talked to me, 3 days later she came back from the program and came straight to our house and she found me lying on my bed exactly where she left me the 3 days ago. She then talked too me and pointed me to the nearest Christ Embassy Church and told me who to see there.
I re-affirmed my faith and rededicated my life to Christ and have been there ever since. Its been 6 years and my life has been nothing short of glorious, i live a fulfilled life, full of peace and joy.
I am a minister of the gospel today and turning many to righteousness, I am also completing my Studies and will soon be a qualified Engineer. Thanks be unto God for the grace and love He has so lavishly poured on me.
I thank my dear Father and Man of God for beggeting me in the gospel of Christ which is committed to his trust. Thank you so much sir for the opportunity to serve in ministry and to manifest the perfections and excellencies of Christ to my world through the gospel you have brought to us.
I love you dearly Sir! This is my salvation story. Blessed be God!!.
